Vintage suitcase catbed


I like this idea a lot. I'd build it up a little higher so a cat could see out the window though. Click to enlarge the photos and instructions from Natural Home magazine.

I'd like it even better if you kept the lid on and keep the cat inside.

I kid!!

Did I mention I have three female cats who don't really get along??

You go through all the trouble of making a cute suitcase bed and the kitty will still opt to sleep on your bed.

True.

But it looks good.

That is a nifty idea!

Although my cats would still prefer the cheapo cardboard box, I'm sure. They're silly like that!

That's nifty. I agree with you about it needing to be higher. Cats love looking out windows. Although the cat pictured doesn't appear to be too fazed about the height.

I might try & assemble one for my dog. Would have to be a very sturdy suitcase. My dog is a little on the chubby side...

My cat would go nuts over this!! Whenever we go on a trip and the suitcases are out she can be found curled up inside it, tucked between our shirts and pants..dreaming of the beach (the most luxurious litter box she has ever imagined) :)

Infinite Cosmos said...

that is totally cute. My cat would love something like that though she is perfectly happy to come up with her makeshift beds and hiding spots ;-)

I'd like to order 7, as in SEVEN of these from you. Can you have them ready some time this afternoon, preferably before the sunny spots in the family room are all gone? You know what the cats say.... "High is good, sunny is Divine" meow.

Love the post!

My cats would love this, but I'd have to make them one each. I'd need some quite large suitcases too ! Bengals...big...
